This daunting project is not a matter of ambition or appetite - or even unconscious Kenyan socialism. It is the necessary function of a progressive president elected in the wake of calamitous conservative misrule. Every entrenched corporate and financial interest stands in the way; it is easier to take a less confrontational path. President Bill Clinton, for example, found it convenient to join in the conservative project of corporately defined trade, financial deregulation and social welfare constriction. From NAFTA to the repeal of welfare and the failure of labor law reform, to deregulating derivatives and repealing Glass-Steagall, he got his agenda wrong. He was seduced far more by Wall Street's Robert Rubin than by Monica Lewinsky.
Now Obama faces the same challenge. This isn't about conventional politics. This is simply about the fate and future of our country. This president has a clear and imperative historic mandate. If he shirks it, he risks more than failing to get reelected. He risks a failed presidency.Piss Panties -- at least as a little girl, my refusing to believe that Katrina hadn't urinated on herself is what caused the little brat to kick me in the shin leaving a scar to this day -- is a stupid, stupid idiot.
Barack can't be saved. Notice that to try to cover for him, she calls Bill Clinton a "conservative" and drags in Monica Lewinsky.
That's because she's smutty.
This is the woman who slept with her professors for grades (married one). She can't exactly sleep with everyone that visits the Post online so she has to just go smutty.
There was no reason to bring up Lewisnky.
There was every reason to bring up the fact that Barack's now deported more people than Bush did in his entire 8 years. Barack's ordered more drone attacks. Barack's continued torture. Barack's continued the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars.
But Katrina just knows that her ugly puss and long nose is just the thing to bring Barack over to the side of good.
Katrina is an idiot.
